Women Empowerment


Investing in education is the most effective way of reducing poverty. And, investing in Secondary School Education yields high dividends. Women account for one-half of the potential talent base throughout the world and therefore, over time, a nation’s competitiveness depends significantly on whether and how it educates and utilizes its female talent. The educational achievements of women can have ripple effects within the family and across generations. Hence, we at Katalyst are focusing on girls’ education in the tertiary sector.
